    I’d like to switch to a theme that allows my categorized posts to appear on a menu item that is visible. I am on Pilcrow that only allows either traditional or pages menu options.

    Thanks for your help.

    The blog I need help with is wordsetcwriting.com.

    The Enterprise theme has two menu bars. Enterprise is the only one I know of that has two menu bar locations that you can actually put pages on. The default behavior of the lower category menu is to show the 10 most popular categories on your blog and no more. Though you can customize what’s shown there with Custom Menus. You can create a new custom menu and assign it to the secondary menu location and then add and arrange as needed.

    According to the following article, Motion and Titan also have two menus:

    The Custom Menu Widget allows you to display pages, categories, and custom links with a single widget on any theme. To use it, you first need to create a custom menu.

    If you added a Category page that does not display please try this.
    Troubleshooting
    Custom menu isn’t appearing! Go to the custom menu page in the dashboard Appearance > Menus and in the “Theme Location” module on the upper left select your custom menu from the pulldown and then click “save”.

    “I am on Pilcrow that only allows either traditional or pages menu options.”

    That’s not true. See here for more:
